Last Friday night, Chase and I went to the Old Idaho Penitentiary with his parents for Bars & Ballads, an event where local musicians played while listeners picnicked on the grass!  It was a really neat way to check out the penitentiary.  I found out that it was open until the 70’s- how crazy is that?!

Cottage Cheese Waffles with Blueberries

We are huge breakfast food fans at our place.  If you have been reading along with the blog for a while, it may seem like the only recipes I share are for breakfast foods, especially waffles!  The only problem with that is typical breakfast foods can be very high in sugar and carbs that cause a huge crash mid-morning.  To combat the crash, I love the cottage cheese pancake recipe in the The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook by Tosca Reno because it has enough protein to keep me full for quite a while.  I tweaked the recipe a bit with things we had on hand and made the batter up as waffles!  Waffles are best, right?  Here’s my version of the recipe.
